Looking deeper, we do not need these trees and blobs at all. The problem
is really just a tag that peels to an object that is not otherwise a ref
tip, regardless of its type.

So below is a patch that simplifies the test even further (the actual
code change is the same).

The nearby tests actually reuse the "client" directory. We can do that,
too, if we simply create new objects for our test, to make sure they
still need fetching. See below (we could also use "git -C" there, but
the subshell matches the other tests).

Subject: fetch-pack: don't try to fetch peel values with --all

When "fetch-pack --all" sees a tag-to-blob on the remote, it
tries to fetch both the tag itself ("refs/tags/foo") and the
peeled value that the remote advertises ("refs/tags/foo^{}").
Asking for the object pointed to by the latter can cause
upload-pack to complain with "not our ref", since it does
not mark the peeled objects with the OUR_REF (unless they
were at the tip of some other ref).

Arguably upload-pack _should_ be marking those peeled
objects. But it never has in the past, since clients would
generally just ask for the tag and expect to get the peeled
value along with it. And that's how "git fetch" works, as
well as older versions of "fetch-pack --all".

The problem was introduced by 5f0fc64513 (fetch-pack:
eliminate spurious error messages, 2012-09-09). Before then,
the matching logic was something like:

  if (refname is ill-formed)
     do nothing
  else if (doing --all)
     always consider it matched
  else
     look through list of sought refs for a match

That commit wanted to flip the order of the second two arms
of that conditional. But we ended up with:

  if (refname is ill-formed)
    do nothing
  else
    look through list of sought refs for a match

  if (--all and no match so far)
    always consider it matched

That means tha an ill-formed ref will trigger the --all
conditional block, even though we should just be ignoring
it. We can fix that by having a single "else" with all of
the well-formed logic, that checks the sought refs and
"--all" in the correct order.
